Traveling Through the Dark: Poems.

Stafford, William.

New York::: Harper & Row,,, 1962.. . A Near Fine copy with a previous owner's name on the flyleaf in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket. Laid-in is a single sheet announcing Stafford's appearance in San Francisco for a series of readings (where this copy was purchased). Stafford's Second Trade Book. Traveling Through the Dark, was published when Stafford was forty-eight. and in 1963 it won the National Book Award. Stafford’s poems are often deceptively simple. Like Robert Frost’s, however, they reveal a distinctive and complex vision upon closer examination. James Dickey, writing in his book Babel to Byzantium, notes that Stafford’s “natural mode of speech is a gentle, mystical, half-mocking and highly personal daydreaming about the western United States.”.

TRAVELING THROUGH THE DARK

New York: Harper & Row, 1962. Green printed design on paper over boards, hardcover in similar dust jacket. 94 + (1) pages.

Dust jacket is still very good with a couple of spots on the very bottom edge with similar nibbles (small bits of paper missing) and a one-inch closed tear at top edge, clean and tidy in a Mylar wrapper. POETRY 3751. Later Printing. Hard Cover. Near Fine Condition/Very Good Dust Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Poetry.
